Iowa State OPPTAG Experience reflection

My first class was a math class called prisoners dilemma. We had two cards a black and a red card, and if you both put down the red card you get 2 points, if you lay down the red and you partner laws down the or vice versa the person with the red gets 5 points and the person with with the black card gets no points. I learned that you should never gamble because there is a mathematician who rigs the machines so you don't win. we did the card thing and whoever got the least, and the most points got a prize, and then we watched a video describing prisoners dilemma. My second class was called discovering with chemistry. in it we used a powder and we put iodine and another liquid in the powder to see how it reacted and then we had to find out what the powder was based on the reaction, it was baking powder. I learned that baking powder has no reaction with iodine, and lab goggles suck. We had to find out who did the crime using the experiments i did  and different one other people did. we did the experiment and then the stuck stuff in liquid nitrogen and we smashed it. The most educational part about the day was the tour, because i learned so much about the campus and all there classes.
I learned that you could put someones name on a brick for 100 dollars out side one of the buildings.
The most fun part of the day was the virtual reality room. If there was something I could improve about the day is make the classes a little bit longer. My biggest takeaway about this experience was that I kinda want to go to this collage it has and amazing campus, WiFi everywhere, tons of food and drink options, and they do every thing they can to make the campus safe and I really want to be a engineer, and they have and amazing course in engineering.

GO HAWKS!!!

ancient Olympics

My topic was the Ancient Olympics. I chose this project because the Olympics are a big part of life today and I wanted to see what they were like when they first started. One of the most interesting things I learned is that they used oil as a sunscreen. I've found out everything I had questions about. I chose to use a Prezi because it is very professional and it looks good without being too complicated. I am proud of my research on my projects because I fell like I got a lot of useful facts.

DWA publishing first quarter

DWA 10/6/17

               I would rather have a job that I love and get paid just enough, than a job that I hate and get paid a lot.  Because with a job that you hate you would hate having to get up to go to work everyday.  With a job that you love you would enjoy going to work and it is more fulfilling than a job you hate.

               "Computers are useless, they can only give you answers."  I agree with that statement because computers don't really ask you questions they only give out answers to questions you give them.  But i do not think they are useless, because if you need to know something about a topic, you may not be able to find that topic in a book so yo could just search it up on a computer.

Words of wisdom.


I learned that is really important to care about other people. It also taught me that no matter how much you fall, you can always get back up.

Nauvoo Field Trip Reflection

My favorite part of the field trip was the blacksmith shop because it was really fun and he told us a few stories and he was really funny and he gave us a diamond of the prairie ring.
The story of the diamond of the prairie is that a boy fell in love with a girl an he asked  her to marry him and the girl said my dad the only man who can marry me is a guy who had a diamond ring, so the guy went to his dad told him about it then the dad said go to the black smith he's smart, so he went to the blacksmith told him the story then he took a nail, and made a curved ring with a diamond look, so then he went to the girl, asked her to marry her and the father said any one who is that smart can marry my daughter.

something i learned about what the pioneers did in the 1840's is that they made anything there own stuff, or bartered for it, or they bought the stuff to make it in bulk then made it, because today whenever we want something we just go to the store and buy it.
The Mormons moved because the different religions and they where fighting so they had to flee because they didn't want o start a civil war.
I would like to study the brick making because its really cool and interesting.

Moral dilemma lititure circle.



                        Spoiler Alert!!!! 

A moral dilemma is something that the character when is deciding between two options.
In the book The False Prince, the moral dilemma is when Sage is choosing to confess he is the real Prince Jaron, and have two other people die and report a fraud person who trained 3 fake princes, or die and let a fraud live and never confess he is the real prince. he chose the best one, report a fraud, admit he is the prince, save two other boys.
I would have done the same thing because it was the best choice and i would be a hero and a prince to a LOT of people.


In Wish Me Luck, the moral dilemma is when his parents send him to Canada and he has to choose whether to hate them, or love them. He solved this by the Germans blowing up his ship and his parents are really worried and they say they will never let him go.I would of done the same has him because honestly, I would do the same because I think no matter what, I will never stop loving my parents.

Invent Iowa

My invention is called shady hat, it is a hat that has sunglasses connected to the hat by a magnet.
I was trying t solve the problem of my sunglass falling off and getting crushed by feet.
My invention solves my problem by attaching sunglasses to a hat by a magnet.
I am most proud of how my model came out, because it looks really good and i thought it was going to look really crappy. My big problem was attaching the sunglasses to the hat, because it took two try's, a dad and son and a lot of card board to do it. If i where to go to state I would improve it by putting labels on it.
